How to Design RESTful APIs for Adoption: RAML and Beyond

So you want to learn about APIs? This hands-on training covers API Design from concept to completion, including how to leverage the RESTful API Modeling Language (RAML), the easiest way to define a practically RESTful API.

With more and more companies opening their metaphorical doors with APIs, it’s important to recognize how critical APX (API eXperience) is to your developers and to your business. Come learn why defining an API in RAML automatically improves APX and ensures happy consumers. MuleSoft has released a few open-source tools to make writing an API a joy for developers, and consuming that API a delightful experience for consumers. Prioritizing implementation over design can introduce unnecessary complexity, and devastate API adoption. Instead, MuleSoft emphasizes good design practices so that API consumers can understand your API quickly and easily. Developers are that much closer to developing applications with your API, bringing you closer to mobile solutions, greater partner sales, and developing new business models.

  • Perfect for: Developers, API Practitioners/Providers
  • Prereqs: Account on API Platform
  • Must know: HTTP basics
  • Nice to know: Javascript, JSON and XML

Note: It would be helpful to know some JavaScript to be able to play around with the API Notebook, but it’s not totally necessary. Not-so-technical people who want to know more about APIs would also benefit and appreciate the uses, at the very least.
